CBS Chicago: Rep. Jackson Has Considered Ending Political Career

What do you all think of this? Is it time for Jesse Jackson Jr. to give it up and focus on his health?
As WBBM Newsradio’s Bernie Tafoya reports, Jackson has not been seen publicly for almost two months. The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., says he is there being treated for depression and abdominal issues, and according to a source who talked to Chicago Sun-Times columnist Michael Sneed, Jackson has thought about ending his political career.

The source tells Sneed that Jackson is “very aware his re-election bid is in November,” and is “under intense pressure to make a statement personally about his situation.”

The source also said Jackson’s wife, Ald. Sandi Jackson (7th) is under pressure to return to work, Sneed reported.

  1. I do not think that Representative Jackson should give up his political career. From what we're learning, his career may have to be put on hold for awhile. Depression can be overcome. It's not always chronic. I wish him and his family well.
